Here's a Card, Magnolia Lane DSP, Birthday Card

This card has a very fun layout. It's super easy and quick, plus you can use up some of your smaller pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. 

On top of that I cut a 3-1/8" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.
Then I cut a 3" x 3" piece of DSP.  My DSP is from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" package.  I had some smaller pieces in my package and it was SO great to be able to use them on a card. Sometimes there's a size that is kind of hard to work with.  This layout helps you use some of those smaller pieces.   I taped the DSP to the Whisper White piece. I lined up the top and sides, leaving the bottom open for words.

I stamped the birthday greeting from the "Here's a Card" set using black Memento ink.

I took a 5" piece of black ribbon and I taped it with scotch tape to the back of the Whisper White piece.  My ribbon is retired and it's 1/8" Ribbon Taffeta. I didn't have any other thin black ribbon. Plus I'm trying to use up some of my ribbons.  I have LOTS and I need to start using what I have so I can justify buying some new ones later.  When the new catalog comes out I will probably buy one, but it may be a white that I can color with my Blends Pens, that will save money plus give me every color I have in Blends Pens.

After I taped the ribbon onto the back of the Whisper White piece, I slipped the ribbon (still on the spool) under the taped ribbon and I tied a knot.  Then I cut the ribbon from the spool.  And that is it, the card is complete.  Well, I did add a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and then it was complete!

This is a fun card to make and I have LOTS of DSP that I would like to use up making simple cards like this.  Simple and pretty!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

I loved your card so much I just made one like it. I didn't have black ribbon so I just cut a really narrow strip of black card stock to use instead. I made a second one and colored the flowers with a Cherry Cobbler blender. TFS
